Set Sail For An Island Adventure
Nature lovers young and old can discover more about Suffolk’s only island this summer with the RSPB’s annual Havergate Adventure being held from 10-12 August.
Run by the RSPB Woodbridge Local Group, the Havergate Adventure offers an amazing opportunity for people to come and explore Havergate Island, its lagoons and salt marshes and encounter some of the wildlife that calls it home.
Now in its 31st year, the adventure starts with an exhilarating 20-minute boat journey from Orford Quay to the island. Once ashore, visitors explore the island alongside an RSPB volunteer guide who will be on hand to help spot them some of the birds, animals and insects living on Havergate including the avocet – best known as the bird featured in the RSPB logo. To make sure visitors don’t miss any hidden treasures, binoculars are available to hire for free on the day.
At the end of the adventure, visitors can buy homemade cakes, snacks and refreshments to enjoy along with a well-earned sit down, before heading back over the water to Orford.
This fun and fascinating wildlife event will be taking place on Saturday 10, Sunday 11 and Monday 12 August, with guided tours leaving every half hour from 9.30am until 1.30pm from Orford Quay. Advance bookings only and tickets are £15 for adults and £5 for under-16s.
